We are a congregation of the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Grace is open to people from all walks of life, in every stage of life. We aim to serve God’s Kingdom as a united body of Christ, offer discipleship opportunities, and plan programs intended to reach and involve God’s Church. Grace celebrates its 120th Anniversary this year in 2017. Since 1897 Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church has been Calling, Equipping, and Sending God’s people to thrive as believers in the New Orleans area.
The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
